Rich in history and natural beauty, Tybee Island off the coast of Georgia has been a seaside haven for more than 200 years. After the Civil War, residents of genteel mainland Savannah began to escape to Tybee Island to get away from the heat and hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy the cool sea breezes from the porches of their cottages. Today, visiting the island is like stepping back into a more relaxed time, where you can while away the days sipping a mint julep by the beach, and linger over modern interpretations of Southern cooking by night.
